Mophie Duo and Mini powerstations aim to keep your devices juiced while on the go
However, as an alternative solution, accessory makers have been touting all-in-one battery solutions in the form of universal battery chargers. Already, we had the opportunity of checking out the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation PRO, which is a ruggedized battery pack, but for those who don’t require the tough exterior, there are two alternative solutions that are coming in really soon.
Mophie unveiled recently that two new solutions are on the horizon – the Mophie Duo and Mini powerstations. With the former, it boasts the higher capacity 6,000 mAh battery, but beyond that, it features two USB ports that allow for simultaneous charging between two devices. Not to be outdone by its bigger brother, the 2,500 mAh Mophie Mini has the advantage of packing a 10.1 amp high-output battery for a significantly faster charging time.
As of right now, the two are slated for release on August 13th with the Duo and Mini priced respectively at $141 (£89.95) and $78 (£89.95).

Waaay overpriced! You can find others on amazon that have higher capacity and cost less. One thing to also note is that these batteries only have 70% of their total mAh available to charge with, the other 30% are used to power the device itself.

I picked up the powerstation about 3 days ago now from verizon, which is $79 I have also been on Mophie's website and the priceing for the duo is $99 and the mini is $59. So they have obviously been released before Aug 13th.
